Pakistan Cricket Board silent on Allegations made by Ex-New Zealand batsman Lou
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has kept silent on the allegations made by Ex-New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent saying keeping quiet is the best thing to do for the time being.
Lou Vincent has provided evidence to the ICC’s anti-corruption unit who according to reports are close to charging a former Pakistan international.
However, the full investigation is not expected to be complete for at least another year.
The ICC’s anti-corruption unit is based in Dubai but most national boards now have their own department. Officers can demand phone records and bank details but prevention through education is regarded as the best tool.
Players attend anti-corruption briefings delivered by the ICC and have to sign forms agreeing to a code of conduct.
Talking to APP, a PCB official said first of all we want to know who this player is and where has he emerged from at once out of the blue. “Saying or doing any action at the moment is not the option,” he said.
The official said we don’t know which Pakistani player Lou Vincent has mentioned or named as the name is not taken out yet. “It is too early to do anything,” he added.
The official said what if that Pakistani player who Lou Vincent has mentioned gets out clean. “We won’t do anything unless or until anything gets officially proven,” he said.
